Emilia is more than just one of Prince George’s godmothers! In fact, she’s credited for introducing Kate to Prince William and now she’s even helping dress the Duchess! Find out what she has in store for Kate’s wardrobe.
Kate Middleton‘s close friend, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, has played a very important role throughout the course of Kate’s life. Emilia and Kate have been BFFs since they were 13, and it’s reported that she even introduced the royal couple back in university when they were just 17. Not only was she selected as one of Prince George‘s godparents but it turns out Emilia has played the role of secret stylist, helping Kate select her outfits for public appearances over the last few months!
Kate Middleton’s Stylist Revealed:
Emilia, who is known for her affinity for fun prints, vintage-inspired items and bursts of color, is trying to get Kate to experiment more with her sense of style. “Kate admires Emilia’s style,” a source tells Grazia Daily. “Emilia has become increasingly important to her and Kate always uses her as a sounding board. Emilia is trying to move Kate away from the Middleton neutral palate and push her towards colour or pattern. Emilia loves vintage and tries to get Kate to be a bit more quirky. When they were at school she used to tease Kate about her prim Jigsaw shirts and hated those fur gilets Kate wore.”
So, what looks has Emilia helped select? According to the source, she was even behind the stunning Alexander McQueen jacket and skirt she wore to Prince George’s christening.
Emilia Helps Decorate The Royal Home:
The transition into the role of stylist comes after Kate enlisted Emilia to help decorate their Kensington Palace home. Emilia, (who owns her own interior design business), has been assisting with the decor since the couple moved in in early October and a year of renovations.
“Emilia has kept to the same ethos when advising Kate on interior decor,” the source continues. “Kate had wanted it all muted beiges and neutrals, but Emilia has encouraged more colour.”
Kate’s BFF has many ties to the royal couple. In fact, her husband, David, is also a friend of Prince William‘s from Eton! “Emilia has become an integral part of Kate and William’s life,” the source says, ‘so she was an obvious choice to guide George in his future.”
We think it’s so sweet that Kate has enlisted the help of her friend! Do you agree? Do you think Kate should experiment more with her style or do you really like it the way it is?
